Melbourne motorbike rider dies in crash after fleeing police© Nine News A motorcyclist has died after fleeing from police in Kings Park. The detective said police chose not to pursue the rider and instead returned to patrolling the area when they came across a crash scene shortly after near the intersection of McLeod Road.

“They’ve commenced the intercept, he has stopped but then has made the wrong choice in the circumstances to accelerate away and has then lost control and subsequently lost his life,” he said.

“A family has now lost someone they love and care for, for just a bad choice.

“It's tragic all round.”

Senior Sergeant Clanchy said adding to the tragedy was the fact the second officer in the police car had graduated from the academy three months earlier.

Professional Standards detectives will oversee the investigation into the crash.
